Keiji Inafune too busy for Dead Rising sequel

Dead RisingKeiji Inafune loves Dead Rising. It’s a good thing, because he’s the producer of the game, and possibly (hopefully) the series. Unfortunately, a sequel may be a long way off, because Inafune simply doesn’t have the time now that he oversees production at Capcom.

Here’s what he had to say regarding the zombie-slaying adventure:

"This is something we hear a lot from the press – Dead Rising 2, and we’re not making it right now, but it is something I would love to make. I would love to be able to take some time off from my business-side responsibilities just to be able to produce it myself – that’s how much I love the game and would love to do it. But there are a lot of things that come into play. There’s staffing, there’s scheduling – who’s working on what – then there’s budget and money, where’s the money coming from? So there are a lot of small things to work out before that would even be possible… If it was announced, I might be the one back in Japan making it. That’s the title that they’re considering back in Capcom Japan that I would want to produce the most, out of anything they’re thinking about. That’s how much I really love it. But I’m very busy."

Don’t get too busy, Keiji. Zombies will come after you.
